My thoughts are Edler at 6+ mil < Luongo, but Edler at 6- mil > Luongo.
Really depends on salary demands.
My less than supportive posts aside, I find that surprising. I think Edler has a longer shelf life.
Of course it depends a team's situation. If we're talking vancouver, they might feel better with a proven guy when they are a contender(with rest of line-up).
For Toronto, I don't know. Young team, they got a decent project in Reimer. It's tough. Obviously, Luongo can help them too but it really depends the price.
I'm not a Toronto fan btw, I just rather get in on the convo on a team I know better than say Florida.
There's no bad reason to get Luongo but they'll weigh the pros and cons and I don't see Toronto feeling comfortable giving up a premium asset like an edler to get Luongo. I'd be shocked if they ever paid that sort of premium.
Edler's contract is a guess at this point. The CBA's rules on length, rollbacks and all that will dictate it.
